6. Captain America: Civil War (2014)

Original Release Date: May 6, 2016

Box Office Earnings: Considering this is a Marvel movie it should come as no surprise that Civil War broke the bank. It’s one of several superhero movies to cross the prestigious $1 billion border.

Critical Acclaim: Again, we’re talking about Marvel here, it did great with critics! While some did think the film was a tad too bloated, most praised the development of core characters like Steve Rogers, Tony Stark, and Bucky Barnes. It is their conflict that really motivates the storyline here. This movie also marks the dark turn the MCU would take in the next phase.

About the Role: Sebastian returns as Bucky Barnes, now completely the Winter Soldier and no longer brainwashed. He’s attempting to live a life of peace until he gets framed for an assassination and is forced on the run all over again.

Simply the Best: Civil War canonizes the infamous comic book arc that causes a splinter between Steve and Tony. The two come to blows over the Sokovia Accords and their inability to agree on laws mandating superheroes register themselves.

In this movie, Sebastian gets to play a different side of Bucky, one that is trying to navigate the world as someone no longer brainwashed but still living with trauma and immense guilt over the things he did while under HYDRA’s control. It’s a great role for him and even though Bucky is a man of few words these days, Sebastian is excellent at acting with his facial expressions and body language. Plus, we get a lot of great Falcon/Winter Soldier moments in this film.
